Although the idea of getting rid of excess fat and contouring the body through plastic surgery is growing in popularity, the risk of side effects, lengthy recovery times or even the idea of going under the knife is enough to deter many.
New, exciting technology has emerged to offer the benefits of body contouring without invasive surgery. A new low level laser, Erchonia’s Zerona laser, can reduce inches and shape the body using low level light without side effects or downtime.
In contrast to high-power, high-heat lasers that are used in various surgical procedures, the new Zerona laser produces a low-level, or cold, output that has no thermal effect on the body’s tissue. Instead, the non-invasive laser helps the body absorb fat by stimulating biological function.
Extensive research shows that fat congregates in interstitial spaces for a certain amount of time. Excess fat is then removed naturally by the body without the negative side effects and downtime associated with more invasive procedures such as liposuction.
The effectiveness of the Zerona laser procedure was recently put to the test during a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, clinical trial. The study revealed that in two weeks of trials with the laser-without surgery, diet restrictions or any other adjuncts, a majority of patients lost at least three inches from their waists, hips and thighs.
Until now there has not been a proven non-invasive procedure to effectively shape the body by removing excess fat.
For many patients who do not want or cannot afford the time required for a surgical procedure, the Zerona technique can serve as an effective alternative. And with the addition of an exercise program and a healthier lifestyle, Zerona is guaranteed to jumpstart your efforts towards reaching your new figure.
